Coming Soon – True Grit

True Grit

The first trailer from the Coen Brothers’ remake of True Grit has just been released. And well… it looks… pretty? Nicely shot? Enigmatic? With a hauting tune and little in the way of acting other than a pleasing voice over from newcomer Hailee Steinfeld, it’s hard to tell much about this.

Of course, I doubt very much that this film will be the misstep that the Coens’ last remake was, and the cast is mouthwatering, especially Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn.

The synopsis is as you’d expect:

Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross’s (Hailee Steinfeld) father has been shot in cold blood by the coward Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), and she is determined to bring him to justice. Enlisting the help of a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. Marshal, Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), she sets out with him — over his objections — to hunt down Chaney. Her father’s blood demands that she pursue the criminal into Indian territory and find him before a Texas Ranger named LeBoeuf (Matt Damon) catches him and brings him back to Texas for the murder of another man.

True Grit is due to open in the UK on January 14th 2011
